dempsey. >>> secretary panetta, welcome back to "meet the press." general dempsey, welcome. let me start with the man that is poised to take your place. he underwent on thursday a pretty tough round of questioning. he seemed to struggle with a lot of the answers. of course this is chuck hagel, the former republican senator from nebraska. look at some of his answers. >> i should have used another term, and i'm sorry. i would like to go back and change the words and the meaning. the bigger point is, what i was saying, i think -- what i meant to say, should have said, is recognizable. it's been recognized, is recognized. well, i said it. and i don't remember the context or when i said it. well, i said what i said. i said many, many things over many years. that's what i should have said. and thank you. >> secretary panetta, many of those answers did not satisfy a lot of republicans. senator roy blunt is going to vote no. he said his answers were too inconsistent particularly related to iran and israel. marco rubio said i've been deeply concerned about his previous comments. john mccain, the
dempsey went before the senate armed services committee to testify about the benghazi consulate attack. the most alarming news out of that testimony was na president obama was virtually absent on the night that four americans died and according to panetta he and general dempsey only spoke once that night to the commander-in-chief. >> the information that, that something was happening, that it was an apparent attack going on in benghazi. and i informed the president of that fact and he at that point directed both myself and general dempsey to do everything we needed to do to try to protect lives there. >> did you have any further communications with him that night? >> no. >> did you have any other further communications, did he ever call you that night to say how are things going, what's going on, where is the consulate? >> no. >> did you communicate with anyone else at the white house that night? >> no. >> no one else called you to say, what, how are things going? >> no. >> the disclosure of that telling statement infuriated my next guest, watch this exchange. >> you talked to the pres
, has to announce for his leadership on benghazi after panetta and general martin dempsey testified, they spoke to the president only once during the eight-hour attack. >> one time. >> right. >> you talked to him how many times? >> the same one time. >> graham and his republican colleagues repeatedly pressed panetta on why there was no direct follow up with mr. obama after they met in the oval office. >> are you surprised that the president of the united states never called you, secretary penta, and said how is it going? >> normally in these situations -- >> did he know the level of threat? >> let me wa finish the answer. we -- we were deploying the forces. he was being kept up to date. >> i hate to interrupt you but we've got limited time. we didn't deploy any forces. >> the white house has said little about what the president did do on the night of september 11th besides releasing this official photo. today the administration tried to shoot down any notion that the president was checked out with one top defense issue e-mailing fox saying we had multiple phone calls, e-mails, video
assistance to be rendered, at what point did he give that order. why did no one show up. general dempsey says the military respond appropriately. i will ask them what is an inappropriate response. the system failed. but the person i blame the most for benghazi is president obama. it's his foreign policy strategy that aloud this conflict to become a death trap. he's the one to share the blame above all others. martha: senator mccain poibtsd out the last two seals were killed in the final hour of a 7-hour siege. it makes the argument you can't respond to the second 911 call and they can't get there in time a little more complicated, doesn't it? >> it it's a system failure. when general dempsey says the d.o.d. responded appropriately. i think not. not one d.o.d. asset reached these people for over 7 hours. i just find it dumbfounding to believe that we could not provide any military assistance on 9/11 of all days. and given the history of the threat. reports out of libya and the terror situation. this is a system failure. no one is pressing the president. the mainstream media is giving the obama
of the joint chiefs, martin dempsey, and i asked them that very question, like why wouldn't you on 9/11, have troops sort of ready? and dempsey said to me, we did, the minute we knew the incident happened, the secretary of defense said, move some troops, scramble some troops, get them ready, let us know what their transit time would be. that's where it ended. i said, why didn't you just move them at that moment when you knew there was trouble. here's what dempsey said. >> we can't be a replacement. it was 9/11 elsewhere in the world not just in libya. >> that's pretty much what secretary panetta said again. >> this is not 9/11, you cannot just simply call and expect within two minutes to have a team in place. it takes time that's the nature of it. our people are there, they're in position to move. but we have to have good intelligence that gives us a head's up that something's going to happen. >> there will be lots of similar questions and even a broader discussion if as expected the defense secretary goes up on the hill to talk about benghazi. >> chuck hagel who is the alleged next secretary
that? >> general dempsey, you have said this would be catastrophic. you have talked about this idea of a hollow force. but explain specifically. sequestered, are we less safe? >> we will become less safe. >> how? >> i'll tell you how. first of all, it's not just sequester. that's the piece of this that's been missing in the discussion. we're also operating under a continuing resolution. the combined effects of sequester and the continuing resolution creates a magnitude of cut in the last half of the year we have to absorb $52 billion when you count the effects of both sequestration and the continuing resolution in the last half of the year. when some of that money is already committed. and the only place you can go and get it under that circumstance is readiness. it's operations. it's maintenance. and it's training. and by the way, the civilians that you hear talked about as potentially being furloughed -- >> 800,000, i believe. 800,000. you guys are already preparing in the defense department. >> we are. and they will lose two days per pay period, 20% less pay for the rest of the y

testimony is when general dempsey, he testified with leon panetta, chairman of the joint chiefs and he said he was surprised when he was pressed that hillary clinton didn't read that all important august 15th cable, right, where chris stevens said we aren't going to be able to repel an attack in benghazi with what we have. he was pressed on that. surprised didn't see it yeah, i would say i was surprised. i thought that was interesting. because it looked like buck passing going on panetta and demps dr. from the state department. people are wondering why we didn't have armed aircraft in the vicinity. well, we didn't have enough time essentially saying the state department didn't request it. so, it all seems like fingers are pointing in the other direction. and i didn't learn all that much. >> here is what i think happened. and you can -- i don't want to do this anymore because nothing is going to happen. all right? nobody is going to be disciplined. nobody is going to be scolded. nobody is going it admit anything. the ambassador over there christopher stephens knew security was bad outside of
